Prisons Aren’t Too Overcrowded for Marriage License Clerks Apparently

Kim Davis

Is this a case of judicial tyranny?

I thought the prisons were overcrowded. Do we really need to put Kim Davis in jail for not issuing a marriage license to a gay couple? Come on, we make all kinds of accommodations to keep people out of jail.

The judge finally ordered five willing clerks to issue the licenses. Why didn’t he do that right away?

In court, Davis, sometimes in tears, testified that she could not obey [Judge David] Bunning’s order because God’s law trumps the court. She is in jail this evening and could be in prison for a year. She’s been remanded. Even Jeffrey Dahmer got bail.

This entire issue is so petty. The punishment seems rather extreme for a non-crime. Is there anything this government won’t criminalize?

Hillary Clinton weighed in.

Sure, like you Hillary. Is she joking with officials upholding the law? Let’s start with her.

Senator Ted Cruz made a couple of great points in a brief statement he posted on his website. He pointed to the hypocrisy of politicians who call for Davis to resign but remain silent over the mayor of San Francisco who has set up a sanctuary city where Americans are being killed by criminal illegal aliens.

He called it judicial tyranny.

His statement:

“Today, judicial lawlessness crossed into judicial tyranny. Today, for the first time ever, the government arrested a Christian woman for living according to her faith. This is wrong. This is not America.

“I stand with Kim Davis. Unequivocally. I stand with every American that the Obama Administration is trying to force to choose between honoring his or her faith or complying with a lawless court opinion.

“In dissent, Chief Justice Roberts rightly observed that the Court’s marriage opinion has nothing to do with the Constitution. Justice Scalia observed that the Court’s opinion was so contrary to law that state and local officials would choose to defy it.

“For every politician — Democrat and Republican — who is tut-tutting that Davis must resign, they are defending a hypocritical standard. Where is the call for the mayor of San Francisco to resign for creating a sanctuary city — resulting in the murder of American citizens by criminal illegal aliens welcomed by his lawlessness?

“Where is the call for President Obama to resign for ignoring and defying our immigration laws, our welfare reform laws, and even his own Obamacare?

“When the mayor of San Francisco and President Obama resign, then we can talk about Kim Davis.

“Those who are persecuting Kim Davis believe that Christians should not serve in public office. That is the consequence of their position. Or, if Christians do serve in public office, they must disregard their religious faith–or be sent to jail.

“Kim Davis should not be in jail. We are a country founded on Judeo-Christian values, founded by those fleeing religious oppression and seeking a land where we could worship God and live according to our faith, without being imprisoned for doing so.

“I call upon every Believer, every Constitutionalist, every lover of liberty to stand with Kim Davis. Stop the persecution now.”

It’s America!  We should make reasonable accommodations for people under the First Amendment and that includes the Muslim airline hostess who doesn’t want to serve wine aboard the plane.

  1. Yet in spite of refusing to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act, and violating our immigration statutes, President Barack Obama remains, “on the outside” ignoring U.S. laws at will. It’s just crazy around here since this guy took office.

  2. What a perfect example of tyranny and government usurpation. No greater one could possibly be found. Our Government first decides that a license is required for what God created, marriage. Then 5 false gods imagine to improve God’s creation by adding their own. To make their hellish creation complete though, tyranny must also be added. In this case, the tyranny of jailing one who refuses to be a witness against God. According to black letter law; The law prohibiting homosexual marriage is still on the books in Kentucky. The SCOTUS does not make law – that is not its constitutional function. Until or unless the Constitution is amended to allow courts to make law, she is not violating the law. Unless I am mistaken, there is no mention of homosexual marriage in the Constitution. SCOTUS has no business “finding” on issues that are not in the Constitution — — that is as I understand it. And I do believe that Kim Davis’ state (KY) has a law against homosexual marriage. I’m on the clerk’s side. In the end – – – it essentially comes down to this: What the left wing cannot get by asking, it takes by FORCE, and our current government is about nothing BUT FORCE.

  3. I have some thoughts here. (1) Give onto Caesar what is Caesar’s and give to God what is God’s; and (2) Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time. Commit a crime, and it’s jail-time for you.

    It’s not like she’s the one who is actually going to marry any twerps (and, for the record, I have nothing against Gays). She’s only suppose to issue the license that will “allow” someone to get married. And, why would ANYone Want to get married, with all the “issues” that go along with it? Who are the ones actually “living in sin” if (you)’re not “married” according to some dingbat in a robe?

  4. Look these up: In US v. Windsor, the SCOTUS stripped congress of any power to define marriage, ruling that it be each state’s right; In Hollingsworth v. Perry, SCOTUS stripped the voters of California of any say in the matter, denying them even standing; then, in Obergefell v. Hodges, that same court decides that, since the electorate and the electorate have no standing, all that remained was for them to strip the states of their standing and the Tyrant 5 would rule God’s creation. The law is created to serve man, not man the law. Now a judge, following the ruling of the despicable Tyrant 5, has decided otherwise, and thousands of sheeple cry out “it’s the law!” Here is the truth that is being rejected: The Supreme Court does not have jurisdiction on marriage. You know that pesky 10th Amendment – – – don’t you think that Obama should resign because DOMA was the law of the land and he didn’t enforce it? I guess we will see Obama perp-walked out of the White House today? How many laws has he chosen not to enforce? I have to laugh when the these lib-tard’s continue to state that ALL laws must be followed and not broken when Obama has “re-arranged” & continues to re-arrange any law that he chooses to. What a joke. They don’t want THIS law broken but every law in the book is broken on immigration laws and half the constitution! If people can be thrown in jail for not doing their job & not following / enforcing the laws, why are Obama and Hillary still roaming free amongst us? What has been completely missed here is that Ms. Davis has won. It never hurts to stand up for what you believe in. Whenever you do that, in God’s economy, you win. Christians who thought they could never be targeted need to awake. It’s going to get worse. Christians need to put on their spiritual war armor and enter the “war room.” Spiritual battles begin with prayer. We need strength from above to withstand these attacks. We need more people with the moral clarity of Kim Davis.

    • I agree and if this country doesn’t get it’s priorities straight this country will be held at GODS wrath.
      I support Kim Davis……and I’m proud to stand by her. To GOD be the glory!!!!!

  5. I have said this before and I will say it again. I was baptized and received first holy communion in the Catholic church and was confirmed Dutch reformed in the Protestant Christian church and today do not follow the hypocritical Christian religion (my opinion. So do not not post this if you want to believe in the first amendment.). Now there is such a thing as separation of church and state. As I recall the Supreme court decision never forced a single church to perform or to force them to have to allow same sex marriage. What they did do is force all states to recognize it and thus force State and federal officials to perform them. This is allowed by the constitution. The constitution is a freedom of religion and religious beliefs. Also it stand for freedom in general. I guess many here feel freedom is only allowed for Christians that hold to an antiquated system that only what they feel is right is allowed and no other freedoms are allowed to exist. Well guess what, you are wrong. For if that was the case, women would not have the right to vote, blacks would not have the right to vote, Japanese Americans would still be locked up in internment camps, and so on. It is quite simple, even the Pope is changing the his views on things and getting petitioned to change his views. THIS should tell you Christians and Catholics something. Simply put, this is a land of freedom; freedom to marry whom you like, freedom to vote for whom you like, freedom to change things for the greater good, freedom to not be oppressed and to get the rights that are denied you. The freedom to accept everyone for who and what they are. And maybe just maybe if we actually did accept everyone for who and what they are, we could end hate world wide and have world peace. But as long as there are bigots that write articles like this to spread the hate of one sect of the country’s and world’s community; sadly this will not come to pass.

    And if you do not like what is written here and want to not add it because it is not in the realm of what you think is correct or proper or not what you view as what is good for your discussion, remember you do promote the sanction of the first amendment, which is freedom of speech, and this is just my opinion and my freedom of speech.
